Movie Info

An informative and emotionally involving portrait of an important subculture, Sound and Fury allows us a glimpse inside the world of the deaf community, while dealing with a controversial operation that some people in that community are resisting. Cochlear ear implants have allowed many deaf people to hear and learn to speak, but many in the deaf community who are happy with its supportive and nurturing atmosphere see the operation as a threat. The film focuses on the Artinian brothers -- Peter

The discourse that ensues over this issue is more entertaining, heartfelt, and insightful than what you'll find in any other film released in 2000.

It doesn't beg for your emotions or sympathies--only for your attention and patience.

Intellectually absorbing and emotionally gripping, and it rather skillfully forces us to think about the 'blessings' of technology with a whole new kind of wariness.

Takes us into a world most of us never get much thought.

Sound and Fury isn't the last word on the controversy, but it puts things in human terms.

Escorts us to a place we never knew existed, inviting us to observe familiar-looking people but see them through new eyes.

Very well balanced, and very emotional as well.

An illuminating, well-balanced portrait of a volatile, two-sided debate.

When a documentary makes a spectator want to jump out of his seat and throw tomatoes at some of the performers, you know that the film maker has captured the imagination of the audience.

A provocative documentary that is sure to make its audience consider things about deafness and handicaps in general that it might not otherwise.

The intriguing film should provoke strong emotions and raise excellent question regardless of the viewer's auditory ability.

Audience Reviews for Sound and Fury

There is so much to be said about this documentary, but mostly I'm impressed by how frustrated, emotionally charged, exhausted, upset, and downright angry it could make me. Proof that decisions, no matter how logical they might seem, are always up for contention.
